It’s rooted in LiveSafe, our approach to connect each employee with safety on a personal level and create a safer environment for all. The LiveSafe principles are:
Leadpoint’s expert safety team, programs and training ensure compliance and reduce risk for our employees and our customers.
Leadpoint’s safety team works closely with industry leaders to establish, update and improve waste and recycling safety standards. We are members of NWRA and SWANA, and our vice president of safety and compliance is on the ANSI Z245 committee that establishes safety and operational standards for the entire industry.
We work with our customers to implement safety programs that, in many cases, exceed minimum government standards and regulations.
Through our Operations Support as a Service (OSAAS) offering, we assist our onsite work teams and take on special projects like safety audits, creation of safety programs, and general safety consulting.
Leadpoint often comes into a MRF and takes on the customer’s workforce or inherits a prior temp labor company’s crew.
Our years of experience confirm two things:
Our experience also verifies that when employees Start Safe, they LiveSafe.
Start Safe, LiveSafe is a 90-day program that instills Leadpoint’s safety practices, values and principles across the MRF. Start Safe, LiveSafe engages each employee with safety training, exercises and committee work that builds a strong foundation for a safer future on the job.
When all employees have the latest PPE for the recycling industry, it reduces injuries across the MRF. We work with our customers to manage PPE inventory and proper equipment use.
Keeping people safe and PPE costs low is one more way we reduce chaos in the plant.
Leadpoint has created a Safety Management System (SMS) to improve safety and ensure compliance at every MRF we support.
The SMS includes:
In addition to our compliance programs, we have several safety initiatives that foster a safe workplace. These include:
Our safety team manages our own OSHA compliance programs and maintains OSHA recordkeeping for our employees.
